Mourinho hails 'fantastic' Manchester United win over Juventus

  • Michael Ballack Jose Mourinho

A definite perk of living in Turin and playing for Juventus is being able to go and watch games at the Allianz Stadium.

Unbeaten in all competitions so far in 2018-19, Juve looked set for yet another win when Cristiano Ronaldo sent them ahead in the second half against struggling United. Juventus' defense will again be hard for United to play against. After doing the same against Bournemouth last weekend, this couldbe a turning point for them and their manager, José Mourinho.

"We shouldn't have given away those free kicks, we're giving away a lot of those at the moment, it was the only way United was going to score, " Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said.

Again the back pages are dominated by Mourinho's provocative behaviour at the end. Victor Lindelof and Ashley Young excelled in the United defence and stuck to their job - and, in Lindelof's case, Ronaldo. "We came here to play like a team that was against a side with different potential on every level", he added. That sign that I made is actually not an offence. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where numerous players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League.

"What really annoys me is losing a match we deserved to win, but at this stage it doesn´t matter that much, we still have nine points".

Ronaldo's comments, coupled with his goal celebration, has been strongly criticized by a section of United fans on social media. It was very Ronaldo to take off his shirt and show off his 20-pack!

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy.

Trump administration officially restores Iran sanctions
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday, "Starting today, Iran will have zero oil revenue to spend on any of these things". We are confronting a bullying enemy. "The maximum pressure exerted by the United States is only going to mount from here".

As I said on 5 live, I would not single out any of United's players for praise. Not now. Beat Young Boys at home later this month and United are as good as through.

"But Martial I think deserves special mention, I thought he was Man United's best player on the day".

"Confidence I'm sure will be on the rise". With Lukaku they are more inclined to play direct, whereas Sánchez is really good at dropping deeper and linking up with the midfield and wingers.

"Then all of the attention turns to Mr Mourinho, he has his right hand to his right ear as if to say to all the Juve fans, 'What have you got to say about that?'" I can see him setting up the side defensively and trying to get something from the game.

The 33-year-old out them in front in the 65th minute, lashing home after Leonardo Bonucci's pinpoint cross.

Mourinho was on the receiving end of taunts from Juventus fans during his side's 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford in October.

'When Mourinho came, the same and we won titles. "I wouldn't do that gesture again but I don't think I offended anyone and at the time it seemed like the appropriate response to those who had insulted all my family, apart from my Inter one too". Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
